Mainstream media is covering the LACK of an event as you can see if a general google search:

https://www.google.com/search?q=dc+trucker+protest

And it looks so small at first....

but from Denver...

Hey it's actually happening...

This fellow did an interpretation of things so far for day one. H/T DP posters below.

hat tip to Bob-45

So then there was this lag in reporting but it was kinda like...getting dark back there. But this came through:

H/T Bob-45 again.

And then this! Aha!!!! So that's what they are up to: driving in 24 hour shifts. Sweet.

And then...what the heck is this and what about November 19th????

10/12 coverage continues.

We open with a bit of a bummer. Seems there's a lot of stock photos and old images being floated as from this event.

Live streaming from Earl Conlon's cab! (happened for a while, it was cool).
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dc-trucker-ride

Barracuda_Trader said they had up around 25,000 viewers on that stream!

As drivers prepared to get some chow and a sleep, Earl Conlon indicated he'd try and updated his facebook page:

As veterans convocate tomorrow (10/13) let's continue to pray (those of us who do) for safety for all concerned, truckers, supporters, vets and the communities and people they interact with. Everybody else send good vibes. Vibe on man.

Klayman is NOT a patriot

he just hopes throwing some trendy words on the pile will scoop some freedom philes into his klan heap.

Quotes from "The General"

"We are looking for an Egyptian moment here!"
"Enough tyranny, enough taxation and enough big government!"

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

sadly the organizer has been

sadly the organizer has been caught on radio saying racist remarks, so stay away from this with a 10ft pole unless you want to be branded a racist.

just another way to discredit liberty thanks toa foul mouthed organizer the main one, santalli.

Ron Paul 2016

Are you gossiping

or, do you have evidence?

That's a quote

saw it on a youtube, the same bit was taped for a media interview.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

KEEP ON TRUCKIN!

Roll on to the BIG O!

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

stock images

Thanks Smudge Pot for the links to Godlike productions So they used a number of stock images. Some one doing manipulation here. I wouldn't send any donation money to this Santilli guy "for fuel". I did give donuts to the poor cold people in the Route 29 overpass. Maybe they were people who where trying to do the right thing,

Strange silence since

the initial thing. Hoping for some good news tomorrow.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Hats off to these patriots!!

Walk your walk truckers!

kind people rock

Overdrive magazine has an initial report...

Why

Why do it on the weekend? Do it from Tuesday through Friday, It's a 4 day weekend in capitol, bureaucrats are not there anyways! Quit being a flock of sheep, no legit insurrection asks permission from the government to protest. Posers

Try to be positive...

Perhaps this way, the shelves start clearing so that when the holiday ends and the bureaucrats return, and the strike turns into a 7-day event (which could have been the plan all along), then it will happen.

Personally I feel we are on a tipping point. A singularity, for freedom. I am interested in November 19 (why not the fifth? Perhaps too soon, I guess?), there's more info on that date here:

Try to be positive?

I prefer reality, that way i can calculate my moves and come out ahead, instead of wishing, or being hopeful or positive. Reality, enjoy it.

Smudge, the South Carolina pic you had, is not from this event.

It is from a Make a Wish Foundation Event earlier this year.

what I saw

About 45 minutes ago I was at the route 29 overpass in Silver Spring. Maybe 20 people were there with American flags and signs about ending obmacare, I did not see anything notable on the beltway. Hopefully there will be more trucks tomorrow.

The first video on this post must be stock footage because it has been raining all day.

Vickie

Good catch

It looks like it might be overcast on that top vid.....but I've already seen some recycled or stock photos floating around.

And these people with the impeach signs. I been seeing them around too. No other issues, single message. Who's behind that whole thing?

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

I agree that on the first

I agree that on the first video it could have been overcast but light enough to make shadows and cause the vehicle to reflect some light, I has been gloomy shadowless all day about 5 miles from where that video was shot,

At one point the Trucker Drive for the Constitution webpage was directing people to a Facebook page. On that page there were links to different FB pages getting for different highway overpass groups. Originally they wanted people to be there to impeach Obama/oppose Obama. Today it was more about supporting the Truckers. The later project is of more interest to me because Obama is, IMHO, only the current spokesman for our ruling class.

Again what I actually saw at the overpass seemed more aimed at Obama and Obamacare but it WAS rush hour so I only got a quick look at everything. I am curious about who is behind this. Never heard of this Santelli guy.

Vickie

The fact that its overcast in

The fact that its overcast in those pictures means its more likely they are real. This whole area has had a storm system over it for the last week, alot of it heading from south to north.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Great finds Smudge!

Well, I'll be!

I really didn't think anything would come of this. Nothing has previously. Maybe it's different this time, after all!

If this keeps up all weekend I'll be eating crow. I would be pleased to be wrong.

Yeah uh, we better open a tab

Crow pie and beer! All we can stand! All weekend long!

All these times we've heard "the truckers are coming" and it finally actually happens.

This is like...nearly messianic in significance.

Friend, may we eat crow like this again and often. For when is the world better off than when we are wrong?

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Hear, hear!

Right you are, friend! Right you are.

cheers.

cheerio.
